Flota Świnoujście (Polish pronunciation: [ˈflɔta ɕfinoˈujɕt͡ɕɛ]) is a football club based in Świnoujście, West Pomeranian Voivodeship, Poland.

Flota, as a club, runs three sports sections: soccer, bridge and table tennis. The club also ran a reserve side, which competed in the lower divisions of Polish football, and three junior sides.

History[edit]

Flota's football section was founded on 17 April 1957 in Świnoujście as Military Sport Club Flota. Its last name was introduced in 1986.

The club spent the majority of their history in the Polish Third Division. They reached the Polish Cup quarter-final in 2012/13. They played in the Polish Second Division for almost 7 years after promotion in 2007, until they withdrew after 29 games mid-way through the 2014/2015 season.

After mounting financial problems, the team officially dissolved on 13 May 2015. Team officials promised the creation of a new team to begin playing in the lowest level of Polish football, indicating that the earliest return to the first division would be in 2023. [2] However the club restarted from the lowest possible division, the 8th tier.[3]
